At number two is the Hollywood film 2012, which statewide has the collections of an M & M (Mammootty and Mohanlal) film. In Ernakulam Shenoys, the net is about Rs 23 lakh in three weeks!

In the third place is Lal Jose- MT Vasudevan Nair combo’s Neelathamara with newcomers which has taken a good opening in towns mainly A stations like Ernakulam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kozhikode etc and can be classified as a hit.

In the fourth position is Ranjith’s Kerala Café, which is an average grosser and in fifth position is Utharaswayamvaram, which is also very average and gets in to the chart to fill up the numbers.
